The Attorney-Client Relationship: Trusting Your Divorce Lawyer--Like A Friend?

Can we be honest? The attorney-client relationship is not really like a friendship. After all, it is a professional relationship. But it is, nonetheless, a very special relationship which has some features of a friendship.

For example, as with a trusted friend, you should be able to confide in your divorce attorney about your most important, often secret, information. Also, you can count on your divorce attorney not to disclose your confidential, privileged information, or betray your trust. In addition, like a good friend, your divorce lawyer should not judge you harshly, even if you have made mistakes. Finally, like a good friend, you should be able to count on your divorce lawyer to help you, and advise you wisely, in your time of need!

Finding a good divorce lawyer, in the beginning -- someone you can trust, almost like a friend --is an important thing for you to consider when you plan a divorce.
